Sideshow Featured Collector: Brandon Walton

Collector: Brandon Walton

Location: Newport, North Carolina

How and when did you start collecting?

I started collecting statues when I was 16 years old.  I was in a comic book store in Durham, NC when I came across a Sideshow statue for the first time.  The detail was amazing. The Sideshow statue was of Mystique standing on skulls. I just had to buy it, and ever since then I’ve been collecting statues little by little. Today I still have that same statue, and an impressive collection to go with it. I’d like to think Sideshow and all the hard work they’ve done to build their empire. Also the creativity, sculpting, and artist that create these beautiful masterpieces.
